Join the crowd for tree lighting

Published November 30, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

It’s a great way to kick off the Christmas season! Join the crowd this Friday evening for the annual tree lighting ceremony hosted by the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce. Lots of lively seasonal music by singers of all ages, and music and hot beverages courtesy of the Salvation Army Anacortes Corps. The corner of 9th and Commercial, 6 p.m. (Come at 5:30 and there will be music under way) Get the kids prepared for a visit by (as they say in the movies) a “special guest.”

About Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
